why I should never write fan fiction

ok I'll skip how and why but a little while ago I was tryin to think of my favorite fictional female charecters, my first response was my version of commander Shepard from the mass effect games, but as anyone who's played the game will tell you who shepard is is left largly up to the player so I didn't really count it, shortly afterwards I came to major kusanagi from ghost in the shell. the following random brain wave is what lead to the title and should not be read by people familer with both works of fiction and wish to keep their sanity

"if my version of commander shepard and major kusanagi were to ever meet, all war and violent crime in the galaxy would be eradicated in about two months"

yeah, that bad. the worst part is that I've actually been trying to keep the fantasies of them meeting out of my head and I promise you there is no way a story like that could work out well. granted I think it works out better than most of what has. (has an experiment I poked around there for less than two minuetes and found a mass effect starcraft cross over) but if I were to start infulging in my fanfiction thoughts it would probably get a lot worse, in fact I'll leave you with one more brain melt moment.

it would probably only be a matter of time before I wold write one were link from legend of zelda and kenshin from ruroni kenshin fight over me.  and yes that would horribly kill both characters.

incase of zombie, I may be screwed aka the zombie plan

ok if you hang out with a bunch of nerds long enough a few subjects are almost guranteed to show up, being the nerd I am I decided to bring this one up myself so without further ado.

what's your zombie plan?

truth be told in that respects I'm probably fairly screwed, I have a small apartment with only three areas that can be sealed off from the others, two of those areas have huge windows that could easily fit three people walking through without real crowding, and given that I'm on the first floor they would be a defenante entry point for zombies locked or not. so if I'm caught suddenly my bathroom is the only safe place. but I don't fair much better if I have some time I live close to a school and practically on a major road that would fill up quickly. I think my best bet would be to grab my wooden practice sword (just as useful as a baseball bat) and oddly enough go to the building i work in. it's a reasonably sturdy building that has a few different rooms I could retreat to in case of breach, most of which have food supplies, even if I'll have to break a vending machine to get it (most more than just candy as well). it even has back up generators that kick in automatically and according to the management can last 24 hours.  not sure how long I would be able to last but I think that's probably my best bet.

though I'm glad i'll never have to put that too the test it is a fun little thought experiment to go through every one in a while. so anybody else care to share their zombie plan.
